You can’t go on the Internet without someone telling you HR is broken and needs to behave more strategically. Some people want to blow up the human resources and staffing functions. Others want to redesign your job for the 100th time.
Are you one of those weasely HR professionals who enjoys compliance audits and loves to plan the company picnic? Would you rather discuss dress codes than business forecasting? Are you some kind of scrub who would rather eat donuts than help an employee navigate a complex work-life issue?
I don’t think so. You seem awesome to me.
Whenever someone tells me something is broken, I look around and try to verify what I’m being told (or sold). If I look around my work environment, I see that I am surrounded by three distinct groups of professionals:
- HR leaders who advise CEOs on important people-related issues.
- Talent acquisition directors who are technologically savvy and have great relationships with their colleagues across the enterprise.
- Staffing professionals who have a deep and unrivaled knowledge of industries, trends and workforce data.
No scrubs in my virtual Rolodex, baby.
Can HR and staffing professionals do better? Of course.
That’s why our theme in September is focused on offering tactical advice for human capital management professionals. For example, it’s easy to tell someone to be strategic, but it’s hard to articulate what that means. Our talent advisors will give you actionable insights into improving your business skills, developing your understanding of HR technology, and becoming your CEO’s best friend.
Our talent advisors won’t belittle you.
Our team — which includes Steve Browne, Jennifer McClure, Neil Morrison, Tim Sackett, and Matt Stollak — actually work in human resources and staffing. They have an unparalleled expertise, which they are eager to share with you for the benefit of elevating the profession. They know your job from the inside out, and they want to help you break HR stereotypes and move your business forward.
So you can have your bloggers and websites that disparage human resources professionals on a regular basis. Here at The Hiring Site, we don’t just take the high road. We watch you blaze trails, and we tell your stories.
The future of human resources is bright. Thanks for joining us in the month of September. Catch up on recent articles you may have missed here.
